I forgot if a thread like this was posted, I know there was a thread kinda similar but just go with it. It sucks that the season is pretty much over, but you gotta admit we all probably had a damn good time. So whats your best memory from the season?
Mine was either taking 4th in a big air comp landing a misty 5/something else. It was soooooo sweet, I hadnt landed it many times, especially not off a big air hit, but I was totally feeling the energy of all the skiers and I just went for it. After I landed my adrenaline and excitement just shot up, one of the best moments in my life. I did shitty in the slopestyle portion so I got 6th overall but it was great for my first comp. Last weekend was pretty sweet too. I didnt think I would throw anything inverted in the pipe until camp maybe or jsut wait a year or so. Anyways the sun was shining, the resort was to close that day and ppl were just goin off. Some other skier was learning flairs for the first time and I just thougt, 'why the hell not, I have enough control so I wont hurt myself'. I hucked a lincoln and it was bad ass, landed close to my feet. Second attempt was a bust, third hit my head on the lip but the fourth attempt I totally felt it, spotted the trick the whole way through and almost stuck it. The next time I stuck it clean, its the best feeling, and I never even expected to try it this year.
Shit, my purpose wasnt to brag (not like there arent 800 members on this site who do the same thing in their sleep), but I just had a really fun year, and Im so glad that I got involved in this sport, I think the potential for adrenaline/fun is unparralelled with any other sport. So, what trick did you stomp this year that you still cant get out of your mind, or what secret stash did you and your friends find?
